Good news from most grounds in League One where a lot of the teams around us hadn't really asserted any dominance, this was probably the first time we cheered an Orient score as they were beating Brizzle Rovers 2-0. Into the Premiership they went and upon hearing West Ham were 3-0 down, a large cheer went around the ground from all the people that must have surely been Arsenal or Spurs fans. Anyways, enough about half time, into the second half we go !
As the second half started so did the idiot shouting like hell in the Carling Stand. Not usually I say this, but I felt sorry for the linesman, having to put up with that idiot all the game, it's not what football's about, especially when there's little kids all around him. Enough about that, back to the action; Vincelot was penalised quite a few times for fouls that we could only marvel it, surely it was the other way ref ! Damien Scannell had the first real chance of the second half, but he could only succeed in blazing his shot high and wide. Then came two bookings in quick succession, one for Yeovil for a silly foul by Luke Ayling on Jon Nurse and then for the Daggers with Doe hacking down Nathan Smith. From the resulting free kick from Does challenge, a great piece of defending from Nurse who charged it down like Barbadian rhino, the block eventually going out of play near the dugouts; if that's what you call them. The Daggers then penned in the glovers for a while with about 4 corners all coming to nothing. Then on 69 minutes, Marvin Morgan who had a decent game, nothing to shout about but a decent game none the less came off to be replaced by big Bas Savage. Then just minutes later, like at Oldham last week, as Bas came on we scored a vital goal. The ball was hooked to Nurse by Bas, , Nurse was on the 6 yard box whilst facing the Carling Stand, he turned hid defender and then slotted home past the helpless glovers keeper.
Dagenham & Redbridge 2-1 Yeovil Town.
|Nurse scored another at Viccy Road|
A great performance all round, my main criticism however was once again Femi, I say fair play to bloke he's come in and done a job but he constantly looks suspect at the back and i reckon it should only be a matter of time before McCrory returns to our pitch.
Man Of The Match was deservedly Tony Roberts with some fine saves in the first half that ultimately kept us in the game, not the first time this season that's for sure.
If we're honest we got slightly lucky today, against a better team we probably would have lost, but at the end of the day, that's what we've always needed but never got, a bit of luck. A much improved second half however saw us show our quality and get through a tricky test against Terry Skivertons men.
|It Looks Brighter Now !|
My Preview for that will be on Monday night.
Hope you've enjoyed the read, Up The Daggers, we believe !!!
